Ebay card for sale.  East Race Street, Searcy AR

This card has shown up and says it was East Race Street in Searcy AR around 1928.  Perhaps some of the Searcy Sleuths will know the exact location.  Here is my guess.  This house at 402 East Race is on the market for sale right now and one of the pictures is shown here.

Compare the lines of this home at 402 E Race and see if you think it is probably the current view of the one in the picture on the postcard. It was built, according to court house information, somewhere around this 1920's date.  It is an interesting comparison and the postcard is a treasure.

Hello Barbara - hmm.  Each photo you share is impressive.  One in the same?  I couldn't say for sure.  Here's hoping your super sleuths of Searcy Arkansas can share their thoughts.

Well, if it's not the same. it's very close. Here's a recent pic with the house at about the same angle I got from Google maps.

I think it is the same one, Don.  All the other good old houses along there are now gone.

I love seeing old postcards which are a testament to how things use to be.  The FB Sacramento History Group often posts some here, and I adore them.
